‘Lost Connections’ transports us from the familiarity of our addiction to social media feeds, the cold blue light of digital screens that constantly distract us – to the largest e-waste dump in the world, in Agbogbloshie, Ghana – a place that I visited through the work of documentary photographers Andrew McConnell and Kevin McElvaney.
‘Lost Connections’ raises questions about e-waste; our relationship to digital technology and our disconnection to the natural world.
To create this series, I worked with Year 10 students from Bassaleg High School and artist Steven George Jones.
